Danny Hatters awarded Human Frontier Science Program Program Grant

Our congratulations to Danny and his colleagues on receiving this prestigious award


The Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) program grants are for collaborative research involving individuals from different countries. There is an emphasis on novel collaborations so that the members of a team will often come from very different disciplines. The idea being that their combined expertise can provide innovative answers to questions that could not be answered by individual laboratories.

Since the establishment of the HFSP grants and fellowships in 1990, 26 grant awardees have gone onto win Nobel Prizes in Physiology, Medicine, Chemistry and Physics.

Danny is the Principal Investigator for a program grant titled “Defining the capacity of cells to keep the proteome folded over space and time”.  His international team of collaborators are:

  • Alex Dickson - Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Michigan State University, USA
  • Simon Ebbinghaus, Department of Chemistry, Institute for Physical Chemistry II, Ruhr‐University Bochum, GERMANY
  • Hannah Nicholas, School of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Sydney, AUSTRALIA  

Danny and his colleagues’ application was rated 4th out of 858, received from the 38 eligible countries for 2017, which is an extraordinary achievement.
